Valuing diversity

68% of our team are women, including 51% of our leaders
9% identify as living with a disability
16% identify as First Nations Australians

Across more than 200 locations in Australia and the UK, directly and through our partnerships, we engage with our diverse clients in 78 languages.

Our commitment to diversity is reflected in our Reconciliation Action Plan and Indigenous Participation Plan.

Fostering leadership

One of our key goals is to develop leadership skills. In 2021 we developed a tailored program to develop leadership capability, build careers and invest in the continued growth of our teams. The program is being deployed across all businesses in partnership with the Angus Knight Institute.

Building capability

At Angus Knight we pride ourselves on recruiting the best talent and supporting them to rise to the challenges and growth ahead. We have partnered with Ability MapTM to help us make informed hiring decisions based on capabilities mapped to specific roles. This allows us to hire the right people, as well as build capability profiles for our existing team members, supporting ongoing professional development and building career pathways across the group.

Our new applicant tracking system, Bullhorn, also helps streamline our talent acquisition processes, enabling the creation of talent pools and enhancing the recruitment experience for our candidates.

Our traineeship program: Angus Knight Allstars

Our Allstars trainee program launched in 2021 to #unleashpotential, providing career development opportunities within the company.

The aim is to recruit trainees for internal positions, just as we do externally for our job seekers. Allstar trainees get the opportunity to build their career by joining one of our businesses for a one-year traineeship and beyond.

The Allstars program offers trainees a structured platform across a variety of vocational disciplines in shared services (for example IT, finance, marketing, people and culture), as well as our employment, education, and community businesses. Alongside on-the-job training, trainees can complete an accredited qualification provided by one of our registered training organisations within the Angus Knight Institute.

 

Allstars is a win:win for everyone. We gain trainees with an aptitude and desire to learn, and trainees enjoy a raft of professional development benefits including:

•           Gaining a nationally recognised qualification

•           Earn while you learn

•           New skills acquisition

•           Executive mentoring and career coaching

•           Career pathway planning

•           Dedicated study time whilst at work

Allstars intakes are scheduled regularly throughout the year and are advertised internally throughout the Angus Knight Group and externally through Seek. We encourage everyone to think about family and friends who could benefit from this opportunity to #unleashpotential.

I love working for Angus Knight because of the support from all levels, career opportunities and knowing they always have my back. There is nothing more likely to make you do better than when your manager trusts and believes in you.

Flo Walker – Team Leader, Jobfind (Cairns)
